After a long career in the fashion industry, I decided to do what I always wanted to do - to teach and to learn Chinese. I went back to university, did a degree in Putonghua (Mandarin Chinese), did Trinity College´s TESOL, and started doing a PGCE. I currently teach English and instruct sewing and tailoring courses.
